The one thing I love about this hotel is that it is right on the beach and you can't beat the location. However, it really needs to be updated, especially the rooms. We expected a top-notch experience and although it was pleasant it was just average. The rooms are clean but not very modern or updated. The hotel itself is 125 years old and they seem to play off of the history and not the current experience people have there. The one thing we did really enjoy was the food there. The food was amazing! We were actually given this trip by my husbands company as an all-expense-paid vacation. We both agreed that had we paid for this stay, rooms are upwards of $500 a night I believe, we would've been disappointed. Overall not worth the money but we did enjoy our vacation overall.
Another point worth mentioning was that we had about an hour left before being picked up on the day we were leaving and came down to the buffet for breakfast. There were plenty of open tables but we were told the wait would be at least 20 minutes. Not willing to risk it, we went to the small coffee shop instead and were very disappointed. I'm not sure if they were understaffed or what the case might have been but honestly, a buffet? Not really much service involved other than the drinks and clearing the plates. This was very inconvenient and we left somewhat annoyed that morning.
